I stayed four nights in this Hotel and at the end of my stay did not wish to leave! My room was spotlessly clean and very well furnished with a huge superking size bed that was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. The bathroom and separate toilet were beautiful, everything you could wish for is provided, Breakfast was included in my rate of about £140 per night and was absolutely lovely. I ate breakfast both in the hotel retaurant, where friendly helpful staff and good range of choices and lovely surroundings, and also had breakfast brought to my room for which no extra charge was made. The in room breakfast was delivered on a trolley with crisp white linen cloths and napkinds and a beautiful flower vase, and the food was beautifully presented and delicious, and was far too much for one person. I felt really safe in the hotel and was given excellent advice and directions and information from the very helpful reception staff, who all spoke perfect english. I also used the spa and enjoyed a fabulous massage.
I ate dinner in the hotel on one occasion and again the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Each room has a nespresso machine so good coffee in your room is always available. Every single member of staff was helpful and courteous, I really cannot find a single fault with this Hotel, and despite all the luxury the 'casual' part of the hotel name really was true in that the staff were not stuffy or snooty. I also ate in several nearby restaurants as recommended by the reception staff all of which were good and reasonably priced. Very handy to have free internet access in the room which meant I could skype my son and not worry about running up a huge internet bill. I shouldn't finish without adding that Vienna was a most beautiful and interesting city with excellent transport options and the Hotel is ideally located to explore this wonderful city. I rarely want to return to a place once I have visited but I will definitely be returning to Vienna and will stay at the Ring Hotel.
